This is an ITC event, as such all relevant army construction rules,FAQ’s and rule sets apply with noted exceptions below. There may be some changes to missions and slight adjustments to the rules closer to the event, so please keep an eye on this document.
This is a Cruisehammer event. This means based upon the number of attendees we’ll be raffling off some tickets to Cruisehammer.org! For more information on Cruisehammer visit their website at www.cruisehammer.org!
IF AT ANY TIME ITC RULES AND THE MOST CURRENT 40K FAQ ARE IN CONFLICT ALWAYS USE THE 40K FAQ
We will be using the CHAMPION’S MISSION PACK found here:
NOTE READ THE DOCUMENT ABOVE AS THERE IS SOME KEY STUFF ABOUT HOW FIRST TURN IS DETERMINED AND HOW MISSIONS ARE LAID OUT
NOTE: As per standard ITC format, all models must be 3 colour up and based. Primer counts as a color. Clear bases such as those found on skimmer models do not have to be painted and/or based in order to count as finished. All models are expected to be WYSIWYG to a reasonable standard, exceptions will be made for themed units or armies.Models not adhering to this policy will be removed from play at the judges discretion.
One of the VERY clear things about the ITC rules packet is not having a fully painted army makes you ineligible for prizes. Get some paint on those guys!
TSHFT Open reserves the rights to change rules or policy without notice.

Your army will be built to 2000pts using the matched play rules
Counts-as models will be permitted, but proxy models will not be allowed.
ITC Faction: Note on your army list which Faction has the most points in it, this will count as your ITC Faction for scoring purposes.
All current source material is allowed.
Proxy vs Counts-As
A proxy is a stand in for another model, wyches for harlequins, cardboard boxes for rhinos, guardsman with lasrifles painted blue for plasma vets. These will not be permitted under any circumstances.
Counts as is a model that has been scratch built or altered/borrowed from another game system that is reasonably a match for its replacement. For example, A Gundam Wraithknight. Converted models to look like the model they’re representing. Unpainted and incorrectly based models will not be considered as proper counts-as models. Models should be on the bases as the models they’re trying to represent.
The Battlefield Terrain Rules listed on Pg.248-251 in the main rulebook will be used for ITC events. Only exception is all buildings regardless of how modeled are considered to have all the windows and doors on the 1st floor boarded up (ie you cannot use the 1st floor windows/doors for Line of Sight purposes).
All models are expected to be WYSIWYG to a reasonable standard. Exceptions will be made for themed units or armies.
Using a reasonable substitute to “Counts As” another model, does not violate our policy.
If in doubt, send a picture in of a model to your TO in advance to ask if it is acceptable.
In addition, you will be asked to vote for your top 3 favorite armies during day one. Third party painted looks nice but if it’s themed cool and really seems well thought out feel free to give that army highest marks! This will be used to determine the favourite army.
Please leave your army on display during lunch of day one to make it easier for people to vote for you, don’t forget to leave your name out somewhere nearby!
Sportsmanship is handled with a Thumb’s Up, Thumbs Down format. We default games to a Thumbs Up from both players.
If your opponent was acting in an unsportsmanlike manner, which we define as being verbally abusive, physically aggressive, was more than 15 minutes late for a round, or knowingly cheated on a rule, you are free to give him or her a Thumbs Down on sports. This rule does not exist to express displeasure in a game because you didn’t like your opponent, your opponent’s army, or you had rules debates, etc.
Judges may at any time impose any penalty they deem appropriate for unsportsmanlike conduct, up to and including expulsion and bans from any future events without any type of refund.
In addition, you will be required to vote for your favorite opponents after your final game. These votes will decide who is the best sportsman.
No player can win more than one award, in the event a player is eligible for more than one award the order presented here will determine which award they win. In which case the other award will be given to the 2nd place player.
Best General – A cumulation of all battle points
Best Sportsman – A cumulation of sports votes
Favorite Army – A accumulation of favorite army votes
WHAT TO BRING
Tape Measure, Dice, Game Aids, etc.
Objective markers. We will provide some of these, but best to be prepared and have some of your own!

All pertinent rules for your army.
If you are using a counts as army, YOU MUST HAVE YOUR PLAYER HANDOUT FOR YOUR OPPONENT IDENTIFYING WHAT EACH UNIT IN YOUR ARMY IS.
